    Totally agree with your comment. A guy from Kurunegala set up two web sites in Germany and collected a sizable amount of funds. Mind you in Kurunegala. In the web site he states : not to send money to any organization, but to him direct , as 100 % of it is for victims. I told my German friends that Kurunegala is in the heart of the island, the tsunami did no damage there. That this is fraudulent and not to send funds to him .

    IT IS TRUE THAT ALL OF US ARE BEING TESTED ALWAYS. THOSE WHO SATISFY THE TESTER, WILL SHAPE THEIR OWN PUNISHMENT. THOSE WHO CHALLENGE THE TESTER WILL BE PUNISHED BUT IF THEY PERSIST, WILL BE ALLOWED TO HAVE THEIR OWN WAY.

    What a tragedy with some victims still living without a proper abode whilst those who robbed even foreign donors' money are living like "Kings" enjoying all the luxuries.
